The Zen of Python

    Beautiful is better than ugly.
    Explicit is better than implicit.
    Simple is better than complex.
    Complex is better than complicated.
    Flat is better than nested.
    Sparse is better than dense.
    Readability counts.
    Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.
    Although practicality beats purity.
    Errors should never pass silently.
    Unless explicitly silenced.
    In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
    There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.
    Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.
    Now is better than never.
    Although never is often better than *right* now.
    If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.
    If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.
    Namespaces are one honking great idea -- let's do more of those!

Top 66 Interview Questions to Answer BEFORE the Job Interview

Top 66 Interview Questions to Answer BEFORE the Job Interview (from pluralsight)

By Interviews
When I wrote the IT Job Interview Questions article back in 2008 I wrote it from the interviewee perspective. I went to several different job interviews before I joined TrainSignal and had a lot of these questions fresh in my mind.
Today, I want to include some tips from the other side: the interviewer’s perspective. I am currently looking for several people to fill positions on my team, and sometimes I am absolutely in shock at how poorly prepared the applicants are for their interviews.
